Time To Confess…My Addictions.

Do you think life would be more interesting if you could just admit to and own your quirks, your “issues”, your addictions?  We all know I have spent more then enough time ranting about my “issues”.  It’s no secret that I detest liars, I feel people who chew with their mouths open are gross, I frankly do not understand idiots who don’t know how to use deodorant and close talkers can kiss my butt.  (they are already close enough!)
Today I will lay some new confessions on you, my addictions. 
Love me or leave me…this is me:
I have an unhealthy addiction to popcorn.  I have been known to wait until the kids go to bed at night to get out the popper, you know, so I don’t have to share.
My day is not complete without coffee. 
I adore all things chocolate.
Cheese; it’s a problem.
I will not leave the house without make-up.  Just a little, but still, no naked face here.  Addicted to lip gloss and mascara! 
I hope it’s okay to spend a good part of each day dreaming about travel and vacations because I do.  Every day.  I think children learn huge life lessons when you give them the gift of travel, and couples grow deeper in love with every trip. 
My body physically craves the warmth from fire in the fireplace, and the heat from the sun.  There is not ever enough heat. 
I am not good at laundry, but I am good at fabric softener.  (In case you didn’t know, that is a thing)  I am addicted to sweet smelling laundry.  In my world, clean smelling laundry and kiddos are the first step to Domestic Goddess Hood.  No towel, sheet or shirt gets past me without out a good old fashioned wash topped off with fabric softener, Downy Unstopables, and then a Bounce Bar just for good measure.  You simply can not have enough good smell!  (Pssst you can save $3.00 off the awesomeness that is Downy Unstopables on the brandsaver.ca website!)
I’ve been watching the Young and the Restless since I was a babe in my Mother’s lap. I won’t say I’m addicted, but I sure as heck can’t give it up!
TV shows I will admit to being addicted to right now; Shameless, The Amazing Race, International House Hunters and Grey’s Anatomy – even though that last one makes me cry far too often these days.
I am addicted to lists.  As much as I am having a bit of an affair with my iPhone I am a paper and pen girl at heart.  To Do lists, notebooks and brand new calendars at the beginning of the year?  Love. 
Confession.  The sad thing, this is just the tip of the iceberg! 
Have any addictions you want to confess?

  1. Hah. My husband is the same way with popcorn.

  2. Coke light! I’ve been known to take a bottle to bed with me at night. And if I don’t have it next to me I’ll get up to go have a couple of swigs during the night. Really healthy I know.

  3. Oh man. I am soooo addicted to list making too. I am pretty sure it is rare for me to NOT have a list somewhere on my person/in my personal space.

    I am not sure why I feel the need to say make a list when I am running three errands, but I do.

    I am not sure if I really appreciate the crossing off an item feeling, if I THINK I am forgetful, or if I am really type A and don’t really know it…

    At any rate, I hear ya! 😀

  4. Ketchup chips and tea with milk, no sugar.

  5. We have the same popcorn maker… and we make popcorn EVERY night!

    I love lists too… oh boy, do I ever!

    Wishing you an amazing weekend!

  6. So how do you think the Newmans are going to disappear by that hit man?:) Love Greys, and Amazing Race, nothing wrong with any of your addictions as far as I can see:) b

  7. I’m also a “lister” – can’t live without my lists!! Off to make some popcorn in our Stir Crazy now 🙂

  8. Mmmm coffee. We always have the coffee pot on at our house. We ran out last week and I declared it the end of the world. Tobei quickly ran out and bought us more. I also have an addiction to pistachios and the internet.

  9. oh i hear you on the fire…i love it…though we dont have a fireplace now…ack! the day does not begin without coffee…or end…or make it passed lunch…lol…

  12. This post made me laugh!
    I have a thing against Garlic. I can always tell if other people have eaten it in the past 24-36 hours. Therefore I don’t eat it.

    I really like bread and sandwiches. If I can’t have bread at least once a day. I eat it twice the next.

  13. Oh so many addictions. Cheese, I love popcorn too and hate to have to share it.

  14. Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper. I just can’t give it up, I love it to much!

  15. Basically I could just take your list and paste It on my page!

  16. I am always jotting down list, or notes.

  17. I am loving popcorn with M&Ms

    Cheesies, Good coffee, Reece’s PB cup minis

  19. totally go with the popcorn & chocolate & YES to hiding from kids its what saves our sanity

  20. At this time of year, I’m addicted to Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs. I admit to buying, stashing, and hiding them so I can have them all for myself;)

  21. My daughter is addicted to popcorn too. Salt is a crave I suppose 😉

  22. I agree on all the food addictions. In fact, I am planning to make popcorn tonight – I like mine airpopped with a drizzle of olive oil and salt.

    And yes, to heat! Summer is my best time.

  23. I think we, as moms, wives, daughters, sisters, friends…. We need to allow ourselves a lot more grace to enjoy the small things. And if they do become addictions, lets remind ourselves that these things such as chocolate, popcorn and Grey’s Anatomy probably aren’t hurting anyone. They just let us turn off our brains for a little while and enjoy a little well-deserved treat. So enjoy, guilt-free, in healthy doses 🙂 thanks for being real!

  24. I can’t start my day without coffee. If I did, bad stuff would happen.
    I’m totally addicted to Real Housewives; the show that is. If they offered a 24 hour live feed, I’d have to quit my job!!
    Good smelling laundry is a must for me too!

  25. You forgot Starbucks!!

    I actually wrote a song about my addictions that was sang/sung??? At my 40th:


    These are a few of my favourite things.


    These are a few of my favourite things.


    These are a few of my favourite things.

    When the kid’s sick,
    When I gain weight,
    When I’m feeling sad.
    I simply remember my favourite things.
    And then I don’t feel so bad.

  26. I have to really make an effort to slap on some makeup before leaving the house. I tend to do it more in Spring. I already look so haggard in winter, I don’t even think the mascara helps at all.

  27. My addictions include: any kind of chip or cracker with any kind of dip, Coronation Street, and the Rick Mercer Report. Oh, and reading this blog, of course!!
